From BGR:
We’re not saying the BEARTOOTH Smart Walkie Talkie System is powered by sorcery, but we’re also not NOT saying the BEARTOOTH Smart Walkie Talkie system is powered by sorcery. This awesome device isn’t actually a walkie talkie. It’s a box that connects wirelessly to your iPhone or Android phone and allows it to make and receive voice calls, send and receive text messages, or even navigate with maps — all without requiring Wi-Fi or cellular service. It’s fantastic for hiking or any remote areas, or for concerts and sporting events where network congestion often makes it impossible to communicate with your friends. Depending on the terrain and your surroundings, it has a range of between 1 and 3 miles!
